Grandpuppy Update

On October 14, 2012, we received a text from our youngest son and his wife -
 "We are becoming puppy parents" - along with this picture.

October 18, a second text and picture -
"These are the two boys we get to choose from."

October 25 - "We chose the one on the right."

November 8 - "His name is Royer."

December 5 - "Royer's home!  He weighs 8 pounds."

December 18 - "He is getting so big!  And even sits on command now!"

December 22-26  Royer came to visit us while his parents were gone,
and we became Royer people, even though we are not dog people. 

January 4 - Royer has doubled his weight
to 16 pounds since they first brought him home.

January 4 - "I love my new toy, Grandma and Grandpa!"

January 4 - "Royer should double his weight again by February 4, to 30 pounds. 
He'll be 50 pounds when he's full grown.

August 8 - Uh, oops!  A bit more than 50 pounds - 67 pounds and climbing!
But they're not taking him back.  He's definitely part of the family now.

  5. What an adorable dog and quite a happy family it looks like. Wonderful to see.

  6. Oh he is so big! I thought that he was a much smaller dog for some reason :) He is so sweet, I loved reading your other posts about him. It's nice to see an update, he looks very cuddly :)

  7. So cuute! I must have missed the one telling what breed of dog Royer is. Is he a Wheaton?

  8. What type of dog is Royer? He is adorable, we have a Great Dane and so love large dogs, one that looks like a teddy bear would be wonderful.

  9. Is Royer A Golden Doodle? He is adorable. I am sure he loves his Grandparents.
